a good one...
Guido's talk was stellar -- listening to a person of his caliber drawing stories from 20+ years of language and system design experience was just great!
Interesting talk, great opportunity to meet "python-people" in Zurich.
Was really nice in fact. It was my first time being with the crowd and I liked people a lot. I liked that Muharem did put some effort into making more casual atmosfere and trying to get to know new people.
Very, very nice. Entertaining, insightful, thought provoking. And the great geek crowd attending.
Thank you for organizing this interesting talk.
Nice talk, rather high-level.
Great talk, as for me he could go on and on and never stop :). Thank you Muharem for organizing this great meetup. Fun as always!
Sounds really good! Big up to the organizers!

Dear all: due to the *huge* interest in this talk we had to relocate to a lecture hall (HG D 1.2). Please take note of that. See you soon :-)
Aaron, good question :-) I think he will present the current state of affairs and where he sees Python going.
What will he be talking about?
This is really cool! Thanks for arranging it.
